2013 BREA “MARGARITA VINEYARDS” CABERNET SAUVIGNON
(PASO ROBLES, CA)
The official Paso Robles wine website says that the region’s town feels like it’s right out of a Normal Rockwell painting, but when Paso emerged on the wine scene it had a reputation for being the Wild, Wild West. In the years that have passed, Paso Robles has become more mainstream, but the energy and pioneering spirit still remain. Paso is known for it’s Cabernet Sauvignon, of which the Brea “Margarita Vineyards” Cab is a shining, and affordable, example.
Brea, a project between Chris Brockway of Broc Cellars and Tim Elenteny of TE Imports, has a passion for organically farmed fruit and wild yeast fermentation to produce real deal, unadulterated expressions of California Cabernet. This vintage of the “Margarita Vineyards” has bright red currants and berry flavors wrapped in elegant tannins and striking minerality.
This wine has earned TJ’s top rating of “yummy,” a term reserved for those that make your toes curl with happiness. It’s got big, in your face fruit, but maintains its balance, a hallmark of the Paso Robles wines and winemaking style.
Still not convinced? Compare the price to that of Napa Cabernet and you’ll see it’s worth it to give this bottle a try! Such a steal for Cab coming out of California.
